Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed Collection Comments Requested; 2020 National Survey of Prosecutors (NSP)
Document Number: 2020-23545
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-10-23
Agency: Department of Justice, Justice Programs Office
The Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Statistics, will be submitting the following information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Following publication of the 60-day notice, BJS received two sets of substantive comments. The first requested that the survey obtain information on prosecutors' handling of appellate cases. The second requested that the survey collect demographic characteristics of defendants. BJS determined that adding these questions would be too burdensome for respondents. Additionally, new items require cognitive testing which at this point would result in a significant delay to launching the survey. Thus, no items were added to the instrument or changed.
